You probably know this too. I will be importing this into Canada in another month or 2. They require DayTime Running Lights. Do the strip of LED lights under the head light that are always on when the engine is on qualify as DRL?

I've been searching for that one a while and I'm thinking they do but would hate to get stopped at the boarder when trying to enter with this rig.

Thanks

I got the SuperSteer Trac Bar though I can't say it's any better than the other one. I do know it wasn't a perfect fit But it sure reduces the tail wag.

Those headlight LED light strips seem to always be on when the key is on. However I have no idea if they'd be considered DTR by DOT.

Could sure use some additional clearance for the places we go to camp. I've been pretty creative with getting through spots without damage "so far" but there've been several really nice spots that we've simply passed on due to access challenges that 2-3 inches all around would eliminate.

Ty ... we just read your post regarding the Trac Bar ... Since Ron installed the Sumo Springs in April...our first outing was last week in the crosswinds of KS, Okla & Texas...I asked him if he noticed a difference on the tail wag...he says it is noticeably less. He does not think he will do the Trac Bar at this time.

True tail wag is not something that sumo or timbren bumpers can really fix ... however they do add some side to side resistance into the equation. If it handles better that's all that matters!

If we keep the axis much longer and a few other "if's" the +2.5" front springs have my name on them The rear is easy to add spacer blocks or air bags to compensate if needed. I really liked my in-dash controls for campsite leveling I had with a previous air bag setup. It's pretty cool to raise/lower a couple inches when needed by pressing a button to dump or pump individual bags.

I've done a few 3D printed RV related things so I thought I'd put a link here for that thread 3D Printed Parts and Accessories
